    Default My first paint job

    Here it is, my first paint job. I used an old special that I had. When putting it back together I noticed the pickup switch was broken and both pickups were engaged when switched in the neck position. I never liked this guitar before because it sounded so muddy. Now I know why. Sounds great now.

    I'm going to try and check on the color of the red. I used duplicolor auto paint and I think my wife has already thrown them away. I'm color blind so I just asked the guy at the auto store. Told him I was doing a EVH guitar and he knew exactly what I was talking about and picked it out for me. It looks good to me.

    Thanks for the reply's. This was fun and I'm hooked and ready to do more. You guys that do this seriously are an inspiration. My next guitar thing is to try and rewind a pickup. Just to see how hard it is and how it comes out.

    This guitar now sounds much better. The bad pickup switch was a good find.
